All rooms are on the ground floor and all doors are of standard width except the back door which is narrower. Access to the Front communal door is down 3 steps from the pavement on Madog street, but most guest find the access easier through the back door.
Parking is available 3 meters from the back (kitchen) door. The parking surface is compacted slate. The path to the kitchen door is slate crazy paving style with a wooden decking over it which can be removed. Access to the kitchen is via a slightly narrow door which is 28.5" wide (3" narrower than standard), There is one small step up of 10cm (3") onto a slate step and then a further step of 10cm (4") over a storm guard into the kitchen. (With the decking in place the difference in height is less, only1" to the slate step and 4" over the storm guard.
The kitchen is (75" wide), has work tops at (36" height), the floor surface is wood effect lino.
Door access to the lounge/diner is (37.5" wide) which is very spacious, has a wood effect lino floor covering.
From the lounge there is access to bedroom 2 with a door way 31" wide. Double room and carpeted.
From the lounge there is access to bedroom 1 carpeted with en-suite shower room which has a doorway (31" wide), lino floor, and recessed shower cubicle with a step up of 9" to the 90 cm wide x115 cm long cm shower cubilcle.
From the lounge/diner there is access to a storage area (or compact 3rd single bedroom on request) with a door width (31" wide). From here there is a door to a communal hallway and to the External door to the front of the property. Floor covering in this storage area is ceramic tiles. Acces to the bathroom with door width (31" width) suite consists of a cast iron bath, WC, hand wash basin and corner quadrant shower cubicle (70 cm x 70 cm) with a step up of 18cm (6") to the shower cubicle. The flooring is ceramic tiles. If required there is a removable aid that will fit around the wc to give 2 handles.
There are 3 slate steps down from the pavement on Madog Street to the front door of Plas Ynys Tywyn which is another entrance.
Wheelchairs: I have a 26" wide manual wheelchair and apart from the weather guard at the front door which I needed some help to get over I could manage all the rooms in the wheelchair. It was a bit tight between the bottom of the bed and chest of drawers in the master bedroom, the bed in the second bedroom would need to be moved against the wall for me to be able to go down the side of it (that would just mean moving the bedside cabinet). There is just about enough room in the bathroom to turn the wheelchair around (no problem in the en-suite). There are no specific handles to help. We have suction ones but these are not weight bearing. We now have a removable frame that fits around the toilet that gives weight bearing handles on either side. If you need more info please ask.
